Retirement Planning Frequently Asked Questions


Is Coastal Financial Planning Group Limited To Specific Investment Strategies Or Products?

No, every person’s retirement needs are different. Coastal Financial Planning Group offers an unlimited number of wealth management strategies and products that are designed to benefit each of our client’s unique retirement goals.

Why do we need to review our current situation before we can talk about making changes?

The first step in any financial decision making process must be an evaluation of risk tolerance, income needs, tax liabilities, long term care needs, estate plans and charitable desires.

Our initial review helps us to discover whether or not your current wealth management strategies align with your expectations for your financial future.

What Do I need to Bring To Our First Meeting?

The following items are requested, the more you provide us, the more we can help you:

Your latest brokerage statements, retirement account statements (IRA, 401(k), TSA, 403(b), etc.), CDs, life insurance policies, and annuity policies (please bring your statements not just a spreadsheet);

· Any existing wills and trusts

· A copy of last year’s Federal Income Tax Return

· An estimate of your annual expenses

· Any questions you may have for discussion

I Already Work With a Financial Representative, Why Should I Make a Change?

91 percent of the people who meet with us already have a financial representative.

Many times, that representative is not a retirement planning specialist, and more often than not, that person works for a particular company rather than for the client. Therefore, he or she may be limited in the products and retirement strategies that he or she can offer.

At Coastal Financial Planning Group, we provide our clients with institutional strategies that allow them to minimize market downturns while capturing market gains. These strategies allow us to create for our clients a predictable, and dependable retirement solution that provides security and peace of mind throughout retirement.
